S S

Community chose it? :(

@Pandya ^^
@Pandya Yeah. I know it. :)
I meant sakthi would have awarded manually instead of wasting half of the rep..
 
1:53 PM
@SS Haha. What's the problem?
@SS Yes, it's up to him. There may be couple of reasons 1) User inactive 2) User don't want to award bounty as having not satisfied fully with answers.
 
S S
@Pandya Nothing. No problem. I meant it in a joking way.Catija thought I know nothing about bounty system. Looking at the same question is somewhat boring.
 
Here it sounds Sakthi is not active since 5th June and so, he hasn't considered to concern about bounty.
 
S S
Yes. He was inactive
But student is active. He asked for some more clarifications in the answer.
 
@SS Yes, you're nicely familiar with StackExchange :)
@SS Actually system also notifies through warning mails to one who started bounty.
 
S S
Thanks for answering. Though there are such evidences for remarriage and divorce, I feel that they should be properly analysed. So Can you quote the words of any Achayas or peethadhipatis? If you are Telugu speaking just see these goo.gl/gh4Z4m , goo.gl/xzMqij and goo.gl/2vIB99. Also in his Anugraha Bhashanam Sringeri Acharya says "The Shastras talk of एकपत्नीव्रतम् – the vow of remaining monogamous. Today many have the bad habit of overriding this injunction too. " The link to the talk is vijayayatra.sringeri.net/archiveyatra/…Student 3 hours ago
@Pandya I didn't know about that.
^^ was the reply from student. @Pandya
 
2:03 PM
@SS it's student's bounty which has ended and he has to award within grace period.
Yes s/he sounds active.
 
S S
He
@Pandya :)
 
Oh! That's your answer! I forgot SS means Sree Charan for Hinduism.SE!
 
S S
Come on! How could you forget? :D :P
 
I think Sakthi wants some quotes from Acharyas. Btw, I can't read what he referred some Telugu links.
Considering your current answer, I think student may award full bounty to you. :)
 
S S
Student is looking for scriptures supporting monogamy in Hinduism. I think he follows Sringeri Jagadguru. He quoted that peethadhipati's quotes. I understood that quotes in telugu. They are about importance of marriage an dmonogamy.
@Pandya Don't know about it.
 
2:24 PM
@SS Hadn't you nominated on Vegetarianism.SE?
 
S S
@Pandya For what?
 
@SS moderators pro tempore
 
S S
@Pandya Haha. No. One of the users asked me about it but I rejected. I don't have knowledge on that topic.
 
@SS you mean knowledge on Vegetarianism or moderation?
 
S S
@Pandya Vegetarianism.
On topic and off-topic about that topic was not clear to me.
 
2:30 PM
@SS oh! ok. Btw you're 25th top user.
 
S S
@Pandya Wow? I only wrote 3 answers there.
